Playing Rhythm and Chords on the Guitar, while singing is very satisfying… We can do it for ourselves, for family and in groups, even accompany others for a great time.

When you know how to divide the skill into its subskills and know what to practice, you get better with it. Else, it is often difficult to keep the rhythm while singing, the pitch doesn’t match with the chords, one doesn’t know where to start, even if you start correctly, you may lose sync.

You need to know what the basic skill for rhythm in this case is, and how to divide time and sync with the lyrics.

To make this complex task easier for you, I have put together a Free video explaining what and how you need to practice.
